Jouni works on the assembly side in the machine shop. He has enjoyed his work in the company since 2007. Jouni’s tasks include grinding/polishing of parts at the assembly, substituting at the washing point, and ordering working clothes and footwear.
Jouni uses the gym 3 to 4 times a week. It’s easy to stop by after work at Palodex. He has been pumping a lot of iron regularly. “As part of the gym environment we help each other and provide advice. We talk about the equipment, how to lift, sets, programmes and all, so it’s a good place to come even if you are visiting a gym for the first time. We are sure to help out,” Jouni promises. Typically about 20 people stop by to train at the gym after work, and usually they all enjoy rock music as the background music, the beat makes sets easier and creates a great atmosphere. Nobody really talks about work at the gym. When you have an ‘iron’ condition, it is easier to carry on a work day. “Recreational activities are well organised at Palodex,” Jouni says.
